In “Noah”, The Fallen Angels Are The Good Guys

In “Noah”, the fallen angels are “good guys” that were kicked out of heaven because of their compassion for humanity, they help Noah build the ark, and they ascend to heaven when they die helping defend the ark against a band of marauding evil humans.

Director Darren Aronofsky stated that he attempted to make “the least biblical biblical film ever made”, and he may have achieved that. In “Noah”, almost everything is the opposite of what it should be. Instead of villains, the fallen angels are heroes. Instead of a preacher of righteousness, Noah is depicted as a psychopathic maniac that hates humanity and wants to kill his unborn grandchild if it is a girl. The movie somehow finds a way to avoid using the word “God” the entire time, and during a scene where Noah explains to his family how the world was “created”, the film displays visuals depicting Darwinian evolution. But all of the controversy surrounding the film only seems to have helped it at the box office. In fact, it pulled in approximately 44 million dollars in North America alone over opening weekend.

When I first heard that a movie about Noah starring Russell Crowe was coming out, I was very excited. I thought that it could spark discussion about one of the most important events in human history.

Unfortunately, the film twists and distorts the story of Noah so badly that it is virtually unrecognizable. And Americans are so dumbed down these days that many of them will end up believing that Aronofsky’s version is what the Bible actually says.

So before we get into the specifics of what “Noah” says about the fallen angels, let us first take a look at what the Scriptures tell us.

In Genesis 6:1-4 we read the following…

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

Obviously the fact that fallen angels got together with human women and produced hybrid offspring displeased God greatly, and in the book of Jude we read that these fallen angels are kept in chains awaiting the day of judgment…

And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

The Book of Enoch, which is actually directly quoted in the book of Jude, refers to these fallen angels as “Watchers” and contains a lot more details about them. The following is how Wikipedia summarizes what the Book of Enoch has to say…

In the Book of Enoch, the Watchers (Aramaic. עִירִין, iyrin), are angels dispatched to Earth to watch over the humans. They soon begin to lust for human women and, at the prodding of their leader Samyaza, defect en masse to illicitly instruct humanity and procreate among them. The offspring of these unions are the Nephilim, savage giants who pillage the earth and endanger humanity. Samyaza and his associates further taught their human charges arts and technologies such as weaponry, cosmetics, mirrors, sorcery, and other techniques that would otherwise be discovered gradually over time by humans, not foisted upon them all at once. Eventually God allows a Great Flood to rid the earth of the Nephilim, but first sends Uriel to warn Noah so as not to eradicate the human race. The Watchers are bound “in the valleys of the Earth” until Judgment Day. (Jude verse 6 says that these fallen angels are kept “in everlasting chains under darkness” until Judgement Day.)

So of course any movie about Noah would clearly depict the fallen angels as the bad guys.

Right?

Wrong.

In Aronofsky’s version, they are actually good guys that help Noah build the ark…

This is the film that will introduce most of the country to the Watchers: fallen angels who, according to Aronofsky’s version, have been encrusted in stone and, with a little persuading, help Noah construct the ark (for giants with gobs of rock for hands, they are extraordinarily dexterous).

When I first heard this, I was absolutely dumbfounded.

And no, the Watchers were not giant rock monsters either. I have no idea where Aronofsky got that.

In “Noah”, the fallen angels are actually portrayed as being more compassionate than the Creator, and when they are banished to Earth for showing too much compassion for humanity they are rescued by Methuselah and his flaming sword…

It is recounted that the Watchers are friends with Methuselah because he saved them once. They came to earth to help the humans after the Creator had banished humans from Eden, but the Watchers too were punished for disobedience by the Creator, who bound them to the earth and forced them to take form as stone creatures. But after learning from them, the humans tried to enslave and kill them. They tried to run, and Methuselah helped their escape by fighting the waves of human soldiers with a burning sword.

Noah speaks with Methuselah and receives a seed passed down from the Garden of Eden. He plants the seed on a plain, and an entire forest grows upon it within seconds. This miracle convinces the Watchers that Noah is chosen by the Creator. Noah announces that all the wood will be used to build an ark, and they start to help with the construction work.

At the end of the movie, instead of receiving judgment, the fallen angels get to ascend to heaven as they die defending Noah’s ark from a violent horde of people trying to board it…

The fallen angels, led by Semjaza, defend Noah and the ark at the start of the flood from Tubal-Cain’s raging army that is fighting to board the ark. The Watchers begin to fall one by one under the army’s onslaught. As the first one dies, the Watcher cries out to the heavens for forgiveness, then his rock-like body transforms into light and shoots up into the sky. This “resurrection” prompts another rock giant to proclaim, “He returns to the Creator.”

I can just imagine how little kids that watch this film are going to feel. They are going to want to be just like the heroic “rock giants” that helped Noah. They are going to have absolutely no idea who “the Watchers” really are.

Normally I do not spend my time writing about Hollywood films. But hundreds of millions of people around the globe could end up seeing this movie over the next several years, and instead of learning about one of the most important events in human history, they are going to get a version of the story that is almost totally opposite of what it should be.

The truth is that fallen angels are real, they really did mate with human women, and the Nephilim really did exist.

You can find some of my previous articles about the Nephilim here, here, here and here.

And Noah really did exist as well, and Jesus told us that we should learn from him, because the days when Jesus returns will be very much like the days of Noah. In Matthew 24:37-39 it says the following…

But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

I really wish that Hollywood would have gotten this one right.

An accurate movie about Noah starring Russell Crowe would have been very cool.

Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out that way.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review

Pop Culture with Papa Razi

From the brother directors (Anthony and Joe Russo) that are still brothers comes a movie that will almost make you forget that they directed You, Me, and Dupree.

Image

                                      The Wachowski Brothers…err…siblings.

Captain America: Bad-Ass Santa Claus is the big-budget, lowly-anticipated sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger; it was a decent, but forgettable movie that even made Mr. Smith dull. However, you don’t have to watch it in order to enjoy this rollicking sequel that will not succeed in making you care about the Human Torch—I mean Captain America (Chris Evans)—but will leave you wanting more.

Lisa's Toilet Reviews

Toilet Review:

 Just out of “The Winter Soldier”. Should have been renamed “Captain America and Black Widow’s Big Day Out”. Pointless movie, except for the steve/bucky angst, and that wasn’t half as present as it should have been.

And moving swiftly on from my first impression. Caught this movie in the IMAX, and it’s movies like this that this medium was made for. Totally immersive in terms of visuals and audio, and just an excellent cinematic experience.

In terms of the movie itself, though, we are talking about a completely different beast. I think all of the standalone Avenger movies have a pacing problem, but it is more evident when it comes to the sequels (Thor: The Dark World, anyone?). It’s clear that the studios involved are only building us towards the next big Avengers movie, but they need to introduce us to the characters. The sequels tend to be…

What’s Wrong With Christian Filmmaking?

Thimblerig's Ark

This morning I read a review of the film God’s Not Dead over at Gospelspam.com, and was struck by the thesis of the review, which is found in the title, “God’s Not Dead but Christian Screenwriting Is.”

The review had plenty of good to say about the film, but also plenty to say about the problems currently found in Christian filmmaking – specifically the writing.  This issue brings up strong feelings and thoughts in me, as I am a Christian, and I have been a student of screenwriting since 2007.  I’ve written screenplays (both produced and un-produced), and have recently published my first novel, Thimblerig’s Ark.  I felt led to respond to the article in the comment section at Gospelspam, and then decided to reproduce the bulk of my comments here.

Let me say from the start that my intention with this article is not to attack my fellow Christian artists.  I…

SMALL NUKE WAR

‘Small’ Nuclear War Would Destroy The World

With an estimated 17,000 nuclear weapons in the world, we have the power to exterminate humanity many times over.

But it wouldn’t take a full-scale nuclear war to make Earth uninhabitable, reports Live Science.

Even a relatively small regional nuclear war, like a conflict between India and Pakistan, could spark a global environmental catastrophe, says a new study.

“Most people would be surprised to know that even a very small regional nuclear war on the other side of the planet could disrupt global climate for at least a decade and wipe out the ozone layer for a decade,” said lead author Michael Mills, an atmospheric scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Colorado.

Noah (spoilers)

Building My World

It’s been a while since there’s been a really impressive disaster movie, but this weekend a big one is opening. It’s a bit reminiscent of the remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still, where an eco-terrorist from space threatens to destroy all human life for not being better stewards of the planet. In this movie, based on the book Genesis, the alien terrorist (called “the Creator”) succeeds. All human life is wiped out, except for one family. All the animal life in the world is drowned, except for what the protagonist Noah can save in one boat. The Creator does all this in the name of “saving the environment.”

The decision to set this movie in ancient times is an odd one. The Creator doesn’t face any noticeable opposition. There are no planes for him to blast out of the sky. There are no scientists hopelessly rushing…

CAPTAIN AMERICA 2: Sets a Good Standard

Vagabond Shoes

captain-america-the-winter-soldier-trailer-0

THIS YEAR’S FIRST blockbuster sets a high standard for the rest of the annual deluge of monsters and mayhem. “Captain America, The Winter’s Soldier” is surprisingly, you could even say, shockingly and adventurously thoughtful.

The story mainly centers around Steve Rogers (beefy, bland Chris Evans, who in a previous life was The Human Torch in “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer”. Captain America is a definite career upgrade). Steve is still trying to adjust to life – and values – in 2014. For those who don’t know or forgot, Steve was a sickly, skinny lad back in 1942 when he felt compelled to join the war effort. It was his strength of character that helped persuade the powers that be to experiment on him, which resulted in his radical transformation from skinny nerd to buff super-hero: the uber super soldier. And super heroic he was until a plane crash…

Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier

Hatboy's Hatstand

Enjoyed a fun but slightly guilt-tinted evening last night with the usual suspects. Unhealthy food was involved, and also alcohol (I had a pint in the afternoon, and then one drink with dinner! I think I got €26 worth of hangover to go with the €26 worth of booze, which hardly seems fair … but anyway). And in between this, we went to see the new Captain America movie.

This is one new superhero[1] who has consistently surprised me and never disappointed. I mean, back in the days of superdickery and all the jokes about cheesy lame superheroes who could never survive a modern movie reboot, Captain America was the slap-a-Jappiest, war-bonds-selliest, Hitler-punchingest sonofawar out there. And yet here he is, in the year 2014, having survived the intervening years in an almost perfect art-imitates-life reflection of his in-story freezing, and he’s kicking arse and taking names. In his hilarious…
